If you are still looking at cutting the stock bars, be aware that on my 2013 the controls are tabbed in place, not simply clamped on. There are small pins cast into the stock handlebars that dowel into holes in the control mounting surfaces. You would need to cut these dowels off prior to relocating the controls.

I just installed a set of Barkbusters and found this out when I wanted to shift the controls a touch. The Barkbusters ended up fitting fine, but its a snug fit.
